According to police in Texas, a Texas woman set her boyfriend on blaze at a Texas gas station, “melting” the skin off his body.
According to the Arlington Police Department, the boyfriend, Ricky Doyle, 25, did die Tuesday in a Dallas-area hospital from burn injuries sustained in the horrendous July 18 attack.
Officers said Doyle and his girlfriend, Breana Johnson, were arguing at a Shell gas station in Arlington at the time.
“I’m going to kill you,” Johnson, was heard telling him, according to a police affidavit.
Johnson, 24, entered the service station and paid $0.50 cents for some gas.
Officers said Doyle and his girlfriend, Breana Johnson, were having an argument at a Shell service station in Arlington at the time.
Subsequently, she had been seen pouring gas on Doyle as he was seated in the backseat of a Jeep. She then approached the driver’s seat and set it on fire to it with an unidentified object.
Doyle had been seen fleeing the vehicle and running through the parking area, attempting to stop his body from incinerating.
Another person came to Doyle’s assistance with an extinguisher, but by that time, eyewitness accounts said he was “bleeding and had skin that appeared to have melted off his body,” according to the police charging document.
While witnesses attempted to assist Doyle inside the gas station, his girlfriend informed bystanders that she had been smoking while pumping gas, which caused the fire.
Witnesses, however, did not believe Johnson’s tale and challenged her, claiming they saw her purposefully set the fire. According to the police report, one witness attempted to apprehend her before cops came, but Johnson pushed the individual to the ground and sped away while smiling.
Johnson was arrested in July and was initially charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Johnson will be charged with murder now that Doyle has died. She is being held at the Tarrant County Jail right now.
